Bestival has announced the first names on its line-up for this year’s festival.
Major Lazer will be headlining the Isle of White festival, alongside The Cure and Hot Chip.
The Diplo-led group are due to release their fourth studio album ‘Music Is the Weapon’ later this year.
Major Lazer commented: "We started at Bestival five years ago, and it was one of our favourite shows to date. Feels like home for us… Rugged and real music fans… Since then we finally impacted in England, and we can’t wait to do our new show and play all the records for the fans at one of the best festivals in the world!!”
Also on the bill are Irish duo Bicep, Chicago selector The Black Madonna and Eats Everything.
Bestival takes place from 8 to 11 September, see the full line-up announced so far on the festival's website.
